Viaccess-Orca and Broadpeak have joined forces to provide Israeli telco Cellcom with an end-to-end solution offering latency of just three seconds for live sports streaming over OTT STBs.
VO’s Secure Video Player (VO Player), a multiplatform secure player that supports HLS, MSS, DASH, and CMAF streaming formats, has been integrated with Broadpeak’s BkS350 Origin Packager, which combines just-in-time packaging with caching to reduce the need for encoding and storage resources.
Perfect timing synchronisation between the VO Player and Broadpeak’s Origin Packager through unmanaged commercial networks (i.e., CDNs) ensures low-latency video streaming, said the companies.
“Low latency is critical during live sports events,” said Philippe Léonetti, CEO at Viaccess-Orca. “Teaming up with Broadpeak, we’re thrilled to provide Cellcom with a secure solution for low-latency live sports streaming. What’s especially innovative about our end-to-end solution is its ability to reduce latency down to three seconds on 4K TVs in the living room, providing sports fans with the ultimate viewing experience.”
Gil Hershberg, CTO of Cellcom TV, added: “We chose to partner with VO and Broadpeak because of their extensive technical innovation and experience in providing cutting-edge solutions for exceptional-quality live sports streaming. We have been able to achieve unparalleled low latency during the latest World Cup, improving our subscribers’ quality of experience and overall satisfaction.”
